ProgStock 2022 is coming, October 7 – 9, 2022!

We’ve been hearing a lot of questions lately!

Is ProgStock happening this year?
What did you think was going to happen? Tom and Ann were going to give up?
If the pandemic didn’t stop us…
And our venue getting flooded didn’t stop us…
I mean, really people!

And what are the dates? Seriously? When is ProgStock? Say it with me now…
COLUMBUS DAY Weekend! or Indigenous Peoples’ Day Weekend or the weekend before the second Monday in October. Confused yet?
How about this? It’s October 7 – 9, 2022!

We’ll be announcing all kinds of exciting stuff over the next week, so pay attention folks!

First, let’s get a bit nostalgic for 2021…

The official merchandise from ProgStock 2021 is now available in the ProgStock Store.
You will find the t-shirts, posters, programs, shotglasses, and wristbands from ProgStock 2021 in there, alongside the same from previous years. We even have a set of the glassware from all five years: the pint glass, stemless wine glass, glass beer mug, and both shotglasses (because you needed two shots), all for only $50 for the whole set.
PLUS ProgStock hats, water bottles, coffee mugs, stickers, car clings, jewelry, key rings and guitar picks that don’t have a year on them at all.

At the top of the store, you might notice we are selling merch for our friends from Total Mass Retain, YES Tribute Band. We are also hosting a livestream of their show from Prog on the Ranch on Friday, April 29 at 8:30PM US Eastern on our StageIt page (StageIt.com/ProgStock). If you can’t be there in person, you are going to want to get tickets to watch it online. While you’re at it, support the band by picking up some of their merch, or buy some extra StageIt Notes to toss in the virtual tip jar during the show. They’re going a long way from home to put on a great show for you and gas is really expensive right now!

2021 was certainly a unique year in ProgStock history…

As we returned from having a virtual festival in 2020, the 2021 festival lineup had many twists and turns. The last of these crazy turns was the illness of our beloved John Goodsall of Brand X. Although the band did not appear at ProgStock 2021 due to John’s illness, their name is on the poster, t-shirt and schedule, and their page is in the program. The program came with an insert of a page for MJ12, the band featuring Percy Jones, also from the original Brand X lineup, who stepped in when John fell ill. This was the last festival booked by Brand X featuring John Goodsall, who passed away shortly after the festival, but his legacy goes on in his music!
Here’s the promo video John made for us for ProgStock 2021…

We miss you, John!
